Has the matter of the error message that my file is "corrupt and cannot be saved" ever been solved?
I'm not sure that problem could be solved in a "blanket" approach. It seems to me that the corrupt file could occur for many different reasons and that SWorks does not want to perpetuate a problem. I would hope it is being looked at though.
I'm also trying to figure out what to do with a file once it becomes corrupt. Sometimes when I open the file anew it lets me make and save some changes before it gets corrupt. Sometimes it lets me save it under a new name when I first open it, but once I get the "corrupt" message it doesn't. Once I succeeded, renamed the new file with the old file's name, and soon that file gave the corrupt message too.
Have you thought of having your VAR submit it to SolidWorks for repair? There are some things they can do to recover some files, not all, but may be worth the effort, especially since it is ramdom on saving or not saving and the corrupt message.
it's 2017 sp2.0 and it is STILL!!! .........happening!!! When will this be fixed?
Maybe you're using the Calvinist version of SW.
2017 SP03 EV
2 Weeks plus, not a single corrupt file error.
I am hopeful that SP03 will resolve this Issue, until they reintroduce it in SP04!
That... is not good
I have it happening in an assembly file, I found if I open each part and save then come back to the Assembly it saves... Whatever the VAR has to fix it ... that should be shipped with SW...
Before Sp03 EV, I found that changing Configs. will allow it to save.
I was unable to save certain Assy's in a specific config. and always have windows Explorer open to verify it actually saved.
Ok so I will try SP3.0 ... but then.... I run Installation Manager and it wants to download 2016 SP's not 2017...
on Solidworks.com, on your Profile you have to check the following Box to get notified and be able to download EV.
SP03 should come out any Day now, usually about 2 weeks after EV release
also should sow in your Taskpane
Thank you I will give that a go
I prefer Armenian versions.
Interestingly, I have had the box for EV notification checked for some time, and actually get the notice, but still do not find the EV available to download.
so you don't see this option?
may want to contact your VAR to check on that.
hopefully any Day now for SP03
You are correct. I see 0.0, 1.0 and 2.0 but not 3.0 EV when I go to the download page. It's not a big deal as there is usually only a 2 week lag but I do hope I will be able to pick up the bata version this year.
Same here, just this
But it is here... in SW
I'm on Solidworks 2017 SP03 right now and it is still happening. I can save the assembly under a different name. Close Solidworks, open the new assembly and save it under the old name and I'm fine for a while. Very annoying though, should be fixed permanently.
That is bad news. I have not had any problems yet since updating.
Did you go from SP02 to SP03, or did you upgrade from an older version?
I get this constantly here and if I first open all the components and assemblies that are in the drawing file and then the drawing it'll work. But if I try to open the drawing without those components, it'll crash..
It is a brand new installation. Removed all previous versions first.
Did you upgrade to 3?
No not yet - soon though
This has started to happen here (for no good reason?) with SW2017. In 5 years of previous versions this never happened. Fix needed now.
For us SP 3.0 "appears" to have fixed it. But maybe we just haven't had time for it to come back around.
